Thanks for writing to us.
Delayed periods with a negative pregnancy test can happen due to mild hormonal imbalances, anxiety, change in dietary habits, anemia , etc. Since you are already having mild intermittent spotting, you need to wait for 2-3 days for your periods to start spontaneously. If that does not happen then consult your gynecologist for further investigations and treatnment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hi.. Home pregnancy test can give false reports especially, if you are no oral contraceptive pills.. Consult a gynaecologist to determine if you are actually pregnant or if there are other cause that could explain this phenomena..
